Iran's FM spokesman condemns Israeli attack on Syria
Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast strongly condemned a recent Israeli airstrike on Syria, and called on the regional countries to vigilantly resist such aggressions.
"Israel and its supporters are after creating ethnic and religious differences among Muslim countries," Mehmanparast told FNA on Sunday.
The Iranian diplomat urged unity among the Middle East countries against Israel's threats.
Explosions shook Damascus early on Sunday and Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military research center on the outskirts of the capital.
The blasts occurred a day after an Israeli official said Tel Aviv had carried out an air strike targeting a consignment of missiles in Syria. The research center hit on Sunday was also targeted by Israel in January.
There was no immediate comment from Israeli officials on Sunday's explosions.
Late in January, the Syrian Army said in a statement that two people were killed and five others injured in an Israeli air strike on a scientific center in Jamraya, 25 kilometers (15 miles) Northwest of the capital Damascus.
